The biggest question will be if the Reds trade (or even non-tender?) Stubbs in this offseason. I think he is as good as gone come 2014.
LaMarre would be there playing center field if not for having surgery after the season on his foot for plantar fasciitis which will keep him out for a few weeks. He was invited to go but he's been dealing with this for a couple months and is going to get it taken care of! I heard this from a friend of his so don't jump to conclusions on what you don't know!
